Weekend Coffee Share, Good Food and Family

Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Natalie the Explorer. Saturday, coffee was in order, with honey and creamer. I really needed it to get me moving. Maybe the hot weather causes this listlessness. Let’s chat over coffee or tea, indoors with the A/C on, of course!

Saturday was my mother’s birthday. We went to Bonefish Grill for some fantastic seafood! There was Bang bang shrimp appetizer, mom had a smoky old-fashioned, and the entrees were awesome! She had their pasta with salmon, I had salmon with rice and creamed spinach. There was so much goodness!

Salmon with capers in lemon sauce!

Please tell me capers are good for my health; and spinach, although it was creamed with bread crumbs on top, has got to be good for me, right? ( Just found out the other day that my cholesterol is high again. I’ve got my work cut out for me).

Happy birthday to Mom!

So I mentioned my high cholesterol, right? It runs in the family. 😦 I also started physical therapy again for a shoulder issue, and they told me it’s frozen shoulder. Ugh! I’ve gone through this before. A Google search told me that high cholesterol can lead to or exacerbate frozen shoulder.

Yikes! I guess I’ll be better about taking my cholesterol meds. I thought I ate healthy, but there are things I could improve: no pizza from a box, fresh sandwiches instead of packaged, and coffee only now and then. That green tea habit I started a few years ago is going to help.

That’s all I can think of. Most doctors don’t tend to tell you what you shouldn’t eat. Mine does tell me to stay active, that’s the only other piece of this solution I can think of. I try to stay active, but I know I could always step it up! I’ve added a Zumba video a few times a week. I need to get it as a set routine, as I don’t quite yet.

My writing routine is, of course, also not very regular due to this shoulder discomfort. I think blogging, poetry, or flash fiction is more my speed, currently. I wrote one Friday about my future knocking at my door. You can read it here: https://pamelascanepa.wordpress.com/2022/07/29/answer-it-rdp/

I’m still in that summer break state of mind, though. You know, no set wake up time. Many days I don’t have to go anywhere. No set bedtime, although I’m a little better about that because I just don’t stay up too late, as a rule. That’s all changing soon; next Monday I’m waking up and going to work for teacher planning.

So, this week I suppose I’ll focus on trying to find my energy. I’ll keep you all posted! Next goal today, a 30 minute walk in the heat, sun hat required….

How are things in your world?

  1. I’ve never tried Bonefish but think I will after seeing your photos! Looks like everyone had a fun time! Sorry about your shoulder, hopefully as you get busy with your upcoming school year it will begin to feel better.

  2. Hi Pam.
    I don’t know if they’re good for us, but we love capers. I did a quick search and found that they are not (as I thought) pickled pepper corns but are the immature flower buds of a certain plant packed in brine.
    They are high in a few vitamins & trace minerals but are not thought to be particularly good for us but neither are they bad.
    You have to love these non work days when you can sleep in and relax some.
